No one who has learned even a modicum of Christian Science can make the mistake of supposing that autosuggestion has any place or part in it. In truth, they are as far as the poles asunder. Autosuggestion is defined in a standard dictionary as "self-suggestion, as distinguished from suggestion coming from another," and suggestion as "the entrance into the mind of an idea or intimation, originated by some external fact or word, which tends to produce an automatic response or reaction." Christian Science is not based in any degree upon any material idea, intimation, fact, or word, but upon spiritual facts and ideas and the logical and imperative deductions therefrom, or, in other words, upon divine metaphysics.

It may safely be added that an intelligent study and demonstration of this doctrine will never be confused or darkened by imagining that suggestion or autosuggestion has any relation to it. On the contrary, the study and demonstration of Christian Science infallibly and unfailingly lead ever farther and farther away from all human practices, theories, and speculations.
